Deviled Egg Dip

Whether you are just a fan of the flavor of deviled eggs but don't like the work of making them or you have extra hard boiled eggs you need used up, this dip is the perfect answer! It is easy and tasty!



   It is hard boiled egg season.  If your family is anything like mine, there will be plenty.  Little Dude loves to dye them, but to be honest he's not the only one.  I love it too and even though they might not admit it I even have a few brothers who still like to dye the eggs too.

    Luckily we like eggs and use them in lots of ways.  My husband and Little Dude like to mash them up with some salt and pepper and just eat them like that.  We also enjoy deviled ham and egg salad, eggs in our tuna salad and eggs on salad.  But deviled eggs are one of our favorite ways to enjoy hard boiled eggs.  The problem is they are so much work!

     Plus there is the issue of peeling a pretty egg.  I can peel a dozen eggs for egg salad, no problem.  They will probably look nice too.



     But tell me I'm peeling them for deviled eggs and I am sure to run into problems. The shells will hold on for dear life and I'll end up with hunks of missing white.  Or the yolks will be all on one side, so one wall will be paper thin.

     Is that just me?  So instead of going through that hassle, I make deviled egg inspired recipes instead.  I use the flavors I know we love from MiMi's deviled eggs and turn them into other things.  Deviled egg potato salad is a great one and this dip is another favorite.



     I have made it for our Easter party in years past and it was a hit.  I made it again recently for family dinner and I was shocked how quickly the bowl emptied.  The bet part is how easily it comes together.  The food processor does the heavy lifting, so no perfect eggs required.

     I like to stir in some chopped eggs at the end for texture.  Then just garnish it the way you like your deviled eggs and you are ready to go! What do you do with all of the hard boiled eggs around the house at Easter time?

  4. So perfect for around Easter. I once made a whole batch of eggs for deviled eggs that just would not peel right - I wish I would have had this recipe!

    1. It seems like I can peel eggs just fine until I need them to look nice for something and they everything goes down the tubes! I love the dip because it takes all of the pressure off to get them perfect.

  7. Carlee, this looks delicious, I love deviled eggs and I like the cream cheese twist in the dip. I could make this and then the cake pop fake eggs at the same time that way I could fool everybody with the fake eggs and have the dip on the side so they can get the real thing. The best!

    1. This is so much easier than stuffing all of those individual eggs and you get to pick out fun dippers to boot!

  10. And those farm fresh eggs are even more problematic on peeling nicely! This is genius. And delicious!

  11. This is a fabulous idea. We love deviled eggs and this is a way to have that deliciousness in something besides eggs. I had never thought of this, but am anxious to try it.
